Zachary’s 1st Birthday Photos
Gosh, I’ve been such an awful blogger! I have been meaning to post these since I got them in November, but with work and life being so busy, this little blog has not been updated as much as I’d like. I keep thinking of things I’d like to write, but I haven’t had a free second. I’ll try to update more.
That said, here are some of my favorite images from Zachary’s 1st birthday party. Since it was his 1st birthday party and he was born around Thanksgiving, we decided to have a pumpkin/fall theme. I’m sure the next one will be something like Thomas the Train or Bob the Builder or Elmo or whatever…but he won’t remember this one, so I got to pick. :)
The images were kindly taken by my good friend Jessica Savidge, a fellow photographer who I work with quite often (can’t wait to shoot with her this coming weekend at a wedding, in fact)!
I painstakingly made this birthday banner by hand without a Cricut machine. I cut out all the letters with an X-acto knife. It was super hard, and I worked on it up until 3am the night before the party, but it was totally worth it! It's one of the most beautiful things I've ever made and I'm so glad I finished it for Zachary's party.
Yummy half & half cake from Publix. This was originally a Halloween design with Jack O' Lanterns on it. I told them not to put the faces on the cake since it was for a birthday, not Halloween. Well, as you can see, one of the pumpkins still has ears. LOL.
Pumpkin cookie favors for Zachary's friends :)

Zachary thought his birthday cake was pretty cool!
He was not really interested in his little smash cake though. It was cute!
He wanted to feed his cake to Mommy. :)
Then it was time to open presents….
Zachary really loved this alien stuffed toy!
He loved his little piano!
One of my gifts to Zachary - a book about wild things for my little Wild Thing! :)
Our happy little family! :)
